June 14, 2014 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Encampment-Riverside Lions Club Arena
The chips fly during Father's Day weekend during this exciting 53rd annual event at the Lions Club Arena in Encampment. Loggers come from all over the country to compete for the title of Rocky Mountain Champion Lumberjack. Using power saws, axes and hand saws, the men and women competitors cut down "trees", chop logs, and saw squared wood blocks in half, racing the clock for the fastest time. Cowboys ride bulls and broncs. This unique Wyoming event assures a good time will be had by all. Sponsored by Encampment-Riverside Lions Club. All proceeds used for civic projects.
